Harinder Kaur, mother of Mehram Singh Sandhu, whose decomposed body was found in Sector 69 on November 7, has demanded that the police get her husband, Varinder Pal, back from Australia to join the investigation.

She was talking to the media after Mehram’s bhog ceremony in Phase 9 on Wednesday. Since October 28 when Mehram was kidnapped, Harinder has persistently accused her husband of the crime.

The police already claim to have sought Interpol’s help to get Varinder Pal to join the probe.

However, Gurmukh Singh, a relative of Varinder Pal, said the allegations were baseless, and even the police had failed to corroborate them. He added that his son, Prabjit Singh, along with Varinder Pal’s father, had been in police custody ever since the child went missing, even though the police had no substantial evidence against them.

Meanwhile, police sources said Harinder was summoned to the police station on Wednesday evening to join investigation. Besides questioning her for few hours, the police also rounded up some persons from Phase 9 in SAS Nagar. They were released after questioning.

Even close to a week after the boy was found dead, the police have yet to make any headway in the case. They are still groping in the dark to find clinching evidence to gain a lead.

The police for days continued to just scan phone call records, leaving them clueless, even as the post-mortem report revealed that the boy was killed on the same day he was kidnapped.

Superintendent of police (detective) Gursharandeep Grewal said details of the investigation could not be disclosed as they were working on several theories to crack the case.
